France Begins ‘Right to Disconnect’ Law

According to a new law in France, about half of that country’s workers could enjoy the “right to disconnect” from work email during their free time. The legal ruling, which took effect January 1, requires businesses with 50 or more staff to negotiate after-hours email rules with their employees, potentially giving them the right to ignore that late-night annoyance, NBC reports. The texts, the messages, the emails — they colonize the life of the individual to the point where he or she eventually breaks down,” Benoit Hamon, a member of the French Parliament, added. He added, “Workers physically leave the office, but they do not leave their work. They remain attached by a kind of electronic leash — like a dog.”  There is currently no penalty in place for companies poised to violate the law. According to European Union statistics, a high proportion of French companies report employing only 49 people, because French workplace laws kick in at 50 or more employees.
